Tic Toc, the clock is getting louder. It is deafening to my ears and translating into a headache. I'm in hopes of completing this project in time to wear on the 4th. The insane side of my knitting brain tells me to complete in time for a party this Sunday. That is 2 1/2 days away readers. I doubt that I will meet my self-imposed deadline.
There are 62 stripes and I have 20 completed. To my credit, I started knitting this shawlette 1 1/2 days ago so that is really good progress.
The pattern is free on Ravelry. "Protest Is Patriotic Shawl". I hate the word protest. It sounds so combative. I prefer the word "Activist" or perhaps "Demonstrator".
I am a political junkie. I try to limit my views on social media. I did march in the "Pussycat" event earlier this year. I did not agree with all the group supported but I did agree with enough to show my support. After all, this is not a "black and white" world. There are grey areas.
Knitting this pattern is a "feel good" recreation. It is difficult to put down. Sleeping seems like such a waste of time. See my previous post for my yarn selection. It is so wonderful that I'm thinking I want to return to the yarn shop to see what colorways they have that would be suitable for a summer short-sleeve top.
The edge on the shawl needs a little tweaking. That red zig zag edge will fall into place.
